Storyboard Text

  • John Barron
  • Oh my goodness! All of this sand in my wharf is causing me to lose significant profits!
  • Mayor Baltimore, the construction on the city water flow has caused me to lose profits. I'm going to sue the city to get my profits back.
  • Let's take this to court.
  • Judge Marshall, the city has no right to take my private property without compensating my loss in profits.
  • Hmm, this does seem to violate the fifth amendment, which is intended to limit the governments power.
  • I have decided that the Supreme Court does not have any ruling in this case since it does not apply to the states. Therefore, Barron, you are not entitled to damages from your property losses.
  • But your construction caused me to lose considerable profits! That's not fair!
  • Fine, we will give you $4,500 in damages, but no more.
